ICYMI: A few notes about the Citrix Receiver Clean-Up Utility

The Citrix Receiver Clean-Up Utility is no longer needed, as it’s part of the CitrixReceiver.exe nowadays.

The Citrix Receiver Clean-Up Utility has been my biggest friend for a while. It helps you to recover broken Citrix Receiver installations on Microsoft Windows. Before I knew it, I sometimes even reinstalled Windows to get Citrix Receiver back to work. Good old days.
But after many years a trustful friendship came to an end. Citrix included the functionality of the Receiver Clean-Up Utility into the Citrix Receiver Setup a while ago. Continue reading “ICYMI: A few notes about the Citrix Receiver Clean-Up Utility”

Storefront Upgrade from 3.8 to 3.9 still forgets default IIS Site setting

Yesterday I installed the upgrade from Citrix Storefront 3.8 to Storefront 3.9 on our Windows Server 2016 Delivery Controller (XenApp 7.12 -> 7.13). The setup went smooth, except that after the upgrade the default IIS website setting was turned off. Again.. Like the last time I did this..

Storefront 3.9 – Set Default Website

I was told that this bug has been filed and will be fixed. But this hasn’t been the case yet.

HowTo: Create a NetScaler Load Balancing vServer for Citrix Workspace Environment Management on the CLI

Since Citrix has released Workspace Environment Management 4.2 there is now a complete section about #WEM in the Citrix eDocs. Part of the new official documentation is a section about load balancing advices. But before that, there has already been a superior blog article about that topic by Ryan Revord.
But what is still missing is a complete overview of the necessary NetScaler CLI commands. That way you can import your WEM load balancing configuration in less than a minute! As I try to do everything in NetScaler on the CLI, I documented the steps during my first WEM deployment and wanted to share them with the community.
